- IMPROVE THE SOIL
Improve your soil before you plant
The way to improve almost any kind of soil – from sticky clay to porous sandy soil – is actually the same.
You add hummus (composted manure, compost or leaf mould, or a combination of them).
If you have sandy soil, the hummus acts like a sponge to hold moisture. And if you have clay, it breaks up sticky particles to create larger pore spaces that drain more easily and help plant roots get the air they need.
